Women's U.S. gymnasts go 1-2

The women's gymnastics individual competition just finished in Beijing, and the U.S. went 1-2. Nastia Liukin won gold -- a slight upset over her teammate Shawn Johnson.

Johnson was just behind, winning silver. It turns out America has the two best women's gymnasts in the world -- just not as much overall depth as China, which won the team gold.

The only rough part about the event is it ended close to 1 a.m. Eastern time. That means a lot of newspapers won't have very complete stories about it in their Friday papers -- if they have stories at all.
